So is Allardyce writing the script for this season's Prem? We went into the weekend fearing the clubs at the bottom might close the gap but so far, so good.
QPR remain joint rock bottom, despite all that financial outlay by Fernandes, and Reading only mustered a point from the match up of incompetents at Loftus Road. Meanwhile, a draw may extend the agony of the Mark Hughes reign just a little longer. He is a dead man walking now, and the longer he stays in charge, the more likely it is that QPR will return to where they belong - the Championship!
By holding each other to a draw, Reading and QPR effectively tightened the hoops around each other's necks. To stay up, QPR now need at least 32 points from 28 games - and that isn't going to be easy given they haven't won a game yet, even if 'Arry takes charge!
Poor, poor QPR - doesn't your heart just bleed for them? At the present points per game ratio, they will have 15 points come the end of the season - the number of points we have after 10 games!
